When we have a lofty goal in mind, there can be days when it seems that the dream has been launched exponentially far ahead of you, as if it were placed on a rubber band and flung far beyond what you can see. Nagging doubts can creep in about our ability and our decisions. When this happens, I try to remember that anything is possible if we only hang in there and don’t give up!
If negative thoughts come into our minds, we must push them aside. We cannot dwell on them, allow them to fester or let them blind us to what we are truly capable of. We acknowledge them and move on, looking for a new way to launch ourselves to the next level, a new way to get us one step closer to our dreams.
But how can I do it? What about my age, my income, my race, my education, my health, my family, my gender, my past mistakes, my fears…It seems impossible.
It is only impossible if you believe it is impossible!
When we have a goal we want to achieve, no matter how ridiculous it may seem, we have to coast on the wave of determination! We must persevere and keep going! There is no shame in making a mistake and trying again. There is no shame in falling and rising once more!
Dreamer…keep on dreaming! It may take you a day, a month, a year, 10 years or more to achieve it but don’t lose sight of that dream!
